The Crafts Council support makers and artists throughout the UK  and in this piece from the blog, they show how interior designers play a vital role in placing craft at the heart of homes and public spaces, supporting the careers of makers and exposing the wider world to the power of the handmade. Here are some of the practices that have made craft central to their work – and some inspiration, perhaps, for your own home improvements.
